Peacock Blue // Finished Modern Quilt

I think you have probably heard me gush about this one hundred times, so I will keep it simple. I love this quilt. I love the colors. I love the khaki kona cotton. I love the simple grid quilting (in aqua!!!) I love the size (~49×62). It has been done for days, but I promised myself I wouldn’t post pictures until it was mailed safely to my friend Janiece. I did put pictures on flickr, which she saw, which made me laugh. She loved it, I hope she still does when she gets it in the mail. The end.

    Oh, I love this quilt! I especially love the combination of the solids and patterns. I am a novice quilter who recently found your blog – do you mind me asking what size the squares are?
